Cagey Christians


Over at United Methodist Deviations, Dan Dick has an excellent post titled “Cagey Christians.” It’s a follow-up to his “Cranky Christians ” post. An excerpt:

Whereas cranky Christians are those who gripe and moan about every little thing, throwing tantrums to get their own way, and acting out in a wide variety of unpleasant ways, cagey Christians employ much more subtle — but no less destructive — tactics.

There are several “cagey Christian” behaviors that Dan Dick addresses. I especially appreciated his recommendation not to try to address the problem of those who gossip, but rather to focus efforts on those who listen to them. I heartily recommend the whole article.
